My Kimono

Kimonos are a huge trend this year, pop one on over a little top and jeans and you instantly feel glamorous (even if you are just going to Sainsburys).

I made mine using the Suki Kimono pattern (only available as a class) and the Ottanta viscose crepe.

The fabric was very lightweight, moved about a fair bit and frayed easily so I used French seams and hand-stitched the front facing. I also lengthened the pattern a bit to make a more flowing kimono. If you want to learn how to handle lightweight fabrics and make your own Suki we still have a couple of places left on our Suki kimono class. It’s on the on the 21st August at our Hove studio, if you want to join us book here
